    I love this look. You can’t go wrong with combining various shades of neutrals in different textures.

    It looks so elegant.. in my first glances I wouldn’t have noticed it were sweatpants.

    …and to think I’ve been wearing my running shoes with my sweats all these years when I could have put on my snakeskin pumps. d*mn.

    I love the coat, the bag, the shoes, the colors, the line, her watch, her killer charming smile, but the encased elastic caressing her lovely ankles is such a buzz kill.

    Don’t think those are sweatpants – the material looks too silky and fine for that..and have such a lovely drape.

    Garance looks fabulous here…but what I REALLY like is the light. What wonderful light.

    I absolutely adore everything about this look, the balance between the shoes and the pants must be hard to pull off for ordinary people but she just does that, I love her blog, too.

    The shoes are the best thing about this outfit. I’ve no doubt she pulls this off beautifully in real life, but caught in a photo the pants have a rumpled, ill-tailored look… and the outfit as a whole is sort of drab (olive drab, to be precise) and unshapely. But the woman has a nice, confident air!

    The colors are just right for her complexion
    And she wares the garments very well
    This is a look made for me.

    Perfect colours and quality coat but then I see the the pants are badly seamed and look synthetic.

    I am also a hopeless case when it comes to that style – I will never understand elasticised ankle pants worn with high heels.

  49. KiwiBella

    February 4, 2009 at 4:06 pm

    Love the coat, bag and shoes. The olive sweat-pants do nothing for me, even if they are silk and even if this is the legendary Garance!

    I would love to see more of the blouse she’s wearing – and what happens to the outfit once the coat is removed.

    Stephanie, it is beautiful how the puddles are actually blue, and not drawn in by crayon lol
    I think her ensemble is fantastic. Rich chocolate brown, muted beige, and a forest like olive green pant; earth tones truly can make a statement when use properly.

    I love how her pants are tapered, yet she wears them with confidence. She does apologize for wearing them. True style is being aware of your body’s proportions and not blindly following fashion rules that do not apply to you.
